The Tourism Studies’ Association (TSA) has praised the Le Meridian Hotel and the Westin Dragonara Resort for being certified with the International Eco Label, titled the Green Key.
The Green Key is awarded to hotels deemed most eco-friendly in the way they make use of sustainable resources and employ an environmentally-conscious staff.
The TSA said that these two awards “put Malta on the green map and will certainly boost high quality tourists who have the natural environment at heart to Malta.”
“[The Green Key award] helps Malta’s tourism in general,” the TSA said. “This is shown by the media and by Tourism Minister Edward Zammit Lewis himself giving importance to this news.”
“This also proves that tourism and the environment can go hand in hand with sustainability. We encourage more hotels to become more environmentally friendly.”
